Repairing the breach : key ways to support family life, reclaim our streets, and rebuild civil society in America's communities : report of the National Task Force on African-American Men and Boys, Andrew J. Young, chairman by National Task Force on African-American Men and Boys( )

9 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 1,208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report of the National Task Force on African-American Men and Boys is the beginning of an approach to repair society's breaches and restore the streets to safety. The Task Force, headed by Andrew J. Young and established in 1994, conceived its mission as one of reclamation. The Task Force made 61 specific recommendations, and three general recommendations. The first of the general recommendations is that a national work group be established to continue the work of the Task Force. The second is that a philanthropic organization be established that would support all of the major recommendations made by the Task Force, and the third is that a National Conversation on Race Relations be facilitated. The specific recommendations are developed around the following themes: (1)"Polis," a comprehensive idea of the values, manners, morals, and etiquette needed to restructure public life; (2) civic storytelling that honors the ordinary hero who creates public kinship; (3) grassroots civic leadership; (4) creation of the common good; (5) restoring community institutions; and (6) civic dialogue and the exchange of ideas and opinions. Seven appendixes present statements by Task Force leaders, the historical background of the Task Force, references, selected speeches, responses of women to the Task Force, and a discussion of the state of human development. (Contains 12 tables, 6 unnumbered charts, and 18 references.) (Sld)

Revolution in higher education : how a small band of innovators will make college accessible and affordable by Richard A DeMillo( )

7 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 1,096 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Colleges and universities have become increasingly costly, but for the past few years, technology-fueled innovation has begun to transform higher education, introducing new ways to disseminate knowledge and better ways to learn -- all at lower cost. In this book, the author tells the story of these pioneering efforts and offers a roadmap for transforming higher education. He chronicles, among other things, the invention of MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) by professors at Stanford and MIT; Salman Khan's Khan Academy; the use of technology by struggling historically black colleges and universities to make learning more accessible; and the latest research on learning and the brain. He describes the revolution's goals and the entrenched hierarchical system it aims to overthrow; and he reframes the nature of the contract between society and its universities. --Publisher description

Witness to change : from Jim Crow to political empowerment by SYBIL MORIAL( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1950s New Orleans, a young woman steps into her white tulle gown and glides down the long hallway of her parents' house into the front garden. Her father, a respected surgeon, drives her downtown, where she will make her debut into Negro society. Though mesmerized by the rituals, Sybil Haydel, 17, cannot help but note their irony in a world where she daily faces the barriers and insults of Jim Crow. Thirteen years later, Sybil lies sleepless in bed next to her husband, Dutch Morial. Medgar Evers, the NAACP's national leader, has just been murdered in Mississippi. Dutch, the organization's New Orleans' president, has just received another chilling death threat. In halting whispers, the couple discusses how to protect their three young children. The Morials first become legal, then political, activists. Testing Brown v. Board of Education, Sybil attempts to enroll at Tulane and Loyola. She and Dutch challenge a statute restricting political activities of public school teachers. Barred from the League of Women Voters, Sybil forms an organization to help register Negroes held back from voting. After serving as judge and Louisiana legislator, Dutch is elected New Orleans' first Black mayor. Sybil's memoir reveals a woman whose intelligence overrides the clichés of racial division. In its pages, we catch rare glimpses of Black professionals in an earlier New Orleans, when races, though socially isolated, lived side by side; when social connections helped to circumvent Jim Crow; when African-American culture forged New Orleans--and American--identity. Through loving eyes, Sybil traces the rise of her sons and daughters: After Dutch's death, Marc Morial, serves two terms as New Orleans mayor"--Provided by publisher

Through darkness to light : photographs along the underground railroad : a photographic essay by Jeanine Michna-Bales( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"They left in the middle of the night-- often carrying little more than the knowledge to follow the North Star. An estimated one hundred thousand slaves between 1830 and the end of the Civil War in 1865 embarked on a journey of untold hardship in search of freedom, many with the aid of the Underground Railroad. Through Darkness to Light : Seeking Freedom on the Underground Railroad imagines how this journey may have appeared through a series of atmospheric and evocative photographs by Jeanine Michna-Bales. From over a decade's worth of research, Michna-Bales pieced together a route of Underground Railroad sites from the cotton plantations just south of Natchitoches, Louisiana, all the way north to the Canadian border, a path encompassing roughly two thousand miles. Complementing Michna-Bales' compelling photographs are essays on the history and figures of the Underground Railroad by Fergus M. Bordwich, Robert F. Darden, and Eric R. Jackson"--
